Please call these State Representatives and ask them to support HB 497 to end long term solitary confinement. This is still an issue and we want a law that states you cannot hold a person in solitary confinement for more than 15 days. We do not want to leave this in the hands of DOC because they will change their policies on a whim. Men are on a hunger strike because of the abuse and dehumanization they receive each day in solitary confinement. HRC members are joining in on the hunger strike in support. The entire Pennsylvania state (the entire world) should know what has driven these men to starve themselves. See news article about HRC's #HUNGRY4JUSTICE rally at Mechanicsburg, PA.
